Numbers Favor Republicans But Path To Senate Majority Is Still Iffy

Sep 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: National Public Radio

Two years ago, I asked Texas Sen. John Cornyn , then the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee , if the GOP was going to win enough seats to take back the majority it lost in 2006.

That's why I fully support and in fact ENCOURGE a woman to use birth control, the morning after pill, and if all else fails then an abortion.
Less people on the planet, less costs to the taxpayer.
With all the unwed births, have pills doesn't equate that they are smart enough to take them.

It's not a matter of ALLOWING women to use whatever, it's a matter of why do I have to pay for some woman's birth control that she is totally capable of paying for herself? Why should I or anyone pay for it so some woman, making over $50,000 a year, can get it for free? Not MY problem and those who can't afford it can get it for free at Planned Parenthood! Give me one good reason why I should pay for YOUR wife's birth control? You can afford it, pay for it yourself.

Americans died because obama and hilliary were asleep at the wheel…

Report: US Was Warned About Libya Attack

As anti-America violence continues across the Middle East, many are wondering what warnings the United States may've had before the attack in Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others dead.
The British newspaper The Independent claims the U.S. State Department had credible information of the attack at least 48 hours before it took place. But even with that warning, there was no instruction for diplomats to be on alert.
"As we did with all of our missions overseas, in advance of the Sept. 11 anniversary and as we do every year, we did evaluate the threat stream and determined that the security was appropriate for what we knew," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.
Many are also pointing out that just one day before the attack, an al Qaeda leader Ayman al- Zawahiri called for Libyans to rise up against Americans over the recent killing of a high-ranking al Qaeda official.
"So one day before the storming of the embassy in Libya, Zawahiri releases a tape calling for vengeance, calling for jihadists to rise up. That's exactly what happened," CBN News Terrorism Analyst Erick Stakelbeck said.

Either pay for birth control, or stop paying for erectile disfunction meds for men. Let's not be hypocrites, that's what pisses me off.

I'm ok either way, as long as its equal for both sexes.

No, but I can also do math.

The difference in the cost of a tank of $4 gas & a tank of $2 gas is about $25.

One tank of gas lasts the average driver about a week.

One week's worth of Starbucks (or cigs) at a cup (or pack) per day is about $30 for coffee or $50 for cigs.

But if math is too hard for you, you actually CAN buy gas a gallon at a time.

So the GOP DOESN'T support banning ALL abortions, even in the case of rape & incest?

So the GOP DOESN'T support banning IUDs & other birth control methods with their "personhood" bill?

Wow, you better get a memo out the Ryan & Romney STAT!!!!!!!!!! Because they've been campainging on EXACTLY those issues and it's even in the GOP platform.

HURRY, before Romney mispeaks AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Btw, insurance coverage of birth control doesn't mean you pay for it, anymore than insurance coverage of erectile dysfunction means I have to pay for that.

The individual is paying for THEIR OWN insurance coverage, whether directly or as part of a pay reduction by their employer. Either way, it's the INDIVIDUAL paying for their healthcare coverage.

Did YOU hear or see ANY of his great speeches outlining what he's planning to do to get us out of this mess? F0X carried it, the big 3 didn't. And don't be a hypocrite, I'll bet you were screaming just as loud and the MSM was when gas prices under Bush even got close to $2.00! The Press blamed that squarely on Bush, here we are 4 years later and gas costs twice as much, and BTW, maybe YOU can afford to pay TWICE as much for gas now and give the ever so elitist advice that it's the cost of a Latte a day, to someone living from paycheck to paycheck, said paycheck being on average $5,000. LESS with higher food and gas costs BTW, it's the difference between meat for dinner, fresh food for the kids and a gallon of milk each week. How very callous of you to just Poo Poo the very real cost of up to $30 or more extra gas costs a week to a family just making ends meet. I'm sure they appreciate your telling them it's nothing, no big deal. Idiot!
When Romney was on Meet The Press, why did he not make any mention of these grand plans? He had more than ample opportunity to do so.

Also, do you have this Fox News link illuminating these plans?

Actually...NO....you can't!

The average gas tank size is 20 Gallons....so the difference is $40 Typical of a liberal to use 'made up' numbers:-)

Bozo, as long as you hand out welfare, EBT cards, WIC and other monetary welfare gifts for each child..........THEY'RE NOT GOING TO USE BIRTH CONTROL. The more babies, the more money!

That should change - but every state determines what their guidelines regarding welfare are concerened, not the feds.

In N.J., they had a law stating the childern you had when you signed up are covered, but not any new ones. All states should do this.

I'm with you on this one buddy!

What was the price of gas when the recession ended?

What is that now?

Put that in your 'math', and recompute.

Gridlock is MUCH better than what we have now with a Jackasscrat Majority Senate.
